(ANSA) – MILAN, APRIL 21 – Apple’s journey towards hi-tech sustainability continues. The giant used only 4% of plastic in the packaging of all its products in 2021, with the commitment to use zero by 2025. The choice leads the company to exploit recycled material, both for packaging and same devices. These are the data presented in the most recent Environmental Progress Report 2022, which updates on the group’s recycling and use of clean energy activities.

On the occasion of Earth Day, which is celebrated tomorrow, Apple recalled the initiative with which it donates 1 dollar (at the exchange rate for different countries) to the WWF for each purchase completed via Apple Pay on the official website, on the Apple Store or at shops in the area.

In 2021, 59% of all aluminum Apple used in its products came from recycled sources, and many devices had a 100% recycled aluminum shell.

Additionally, Apple’s products contained 45% certified recycled rare earths in 2021, a significant increase since the company introduced recycled rare earths to its range of devices. The percentage is 30% for certified recycled tin, using 100% recycled tin in the solder of the logic boards for all new iPhones, iPads, AirPods and Macs, and 13% certified recycled cobalt in the batteries. iPhone, which Apple’s Daisy robot can retrieve from old products to put it back into the market supply chain. In addition to illustrating Apple’s progress in recycling and sourcing materials, the new Environmental Progress Report 2022 highlights that, in 2021, the company’s net emissions remained unchanged and Apple is carbon neutral in all of its global activities from 2020. All offices, stores and data centers have been powered by electricity from 100% renewable sources since 2018. (ANSA).
